National Ice Cream Day is Sunday, July 18.

A new study from Instacart determined the most popular ice cream flavors in each state.

"Americans' love for ice cream runs deep, and with thousands of different ice cream options available for purchase through Instacart, we thought it would be fascinating to dig into the data to uncover the most uniquely popular flavors in each state," Instacart's trends expert Laurentia Romaniuk told Travel + Leisure. "It turns out that people across the country have a hankering for vanilla, peanut butter cups, and fudge since 'Moose Tracks' is the top unique flavor in 12 states."

According to the study, 24 states picked ice cream flavors with chocolate as the base as their favorite, and California was one of those states.

The Golden State's favorite ice cream flavor is Rocky Road.

Other states also have a love for the flavor. Arizona, Nevada, Utah, and Wyoming all had Rocky Road as their go-to ice cream choice.
